While growing up I had several discussions with my mom because of the things my brother was allowed to do but I never could. I was raised in a family where the man is the breadwinner in the family and the the mother is the housewife. Being raised in such environment pushed me and motivated me to become a feminist and interest me in topics that relate to gender. My brother was always allowed to to do things that I never was including joining after school activities. While growing up and learning I had a saying in my own actions I started getting involved in different activities and it was hard for my mother to understand why i was doing the things i was doing when in reality they were beneficial to my future. My point is because at times our parents might not understand the things we do or disagree it doesn't mean they are not good for our future. Society has socially constructed beliefs in our culture that women have one path in their life but generations now have learned that we create our own. It was the difference in culture that created a misunderstanding of the things I wanted and had to do for my future. My mother wanted me to get married and have kids at a young age when my thoughts were to have a career than maybe one day get married. I not only taught my mother that women can accomplish a lot more than we are taught we can but I created a new generation of women withinmy family.
